I probably should know this but I don't! So I'm asking for the simplest conversion mehod possible, preferable at A level standard or below. Thankyou! A slightly harassed ...show more

1 newton = 1 joule/meter
Use this online converter:Source(s):

A trick to remember is to consider what you are left with at the end of your problem.
IE: If you are looking for work done, what does the formula W=fd contains,
It contains a force or f expressed in kg*m/s^2(if you are left with kg*m/s^2 you are left with a newton)
multiplied by a distance (d) in meters (if you are left with m you are left with a distance in meters)
So if you are left with kg*m^2/s^2 you are left with joules. 
If 1 joule of force acts on one meter distance, its one newton.please check this

newtons arent for the same thing as joules.newtons are for force, joules are for work done, so you can't do a conversion.
anyway joules=newtons/meters
1joule*1meter=1newton

p.s:if you need help on physics, email me!!;) 
You cannot convert Newtons to Joules  they measure different things. If you do not understand this you are WAY below A level standard.
Newtons are units of force.
Joules are units of energy.
Clearly, a force can do work and so can be related to energy. But so can many other things. This does not imply a conversion. 
Aren't you a little young to remember Juice Newton? Oh, wait...
